    What a difference a day makes!

    Wow, I made an appointment today to get weighed. I have avoided getting weighed since Christmas because I felt such a blimp, I want to avoid ever being weighed and seeing a gain. SO I have plodded from day to day sort of sticking with it and feeling very hard done by. Mutter mutter grumble moan.
    Today I told myself that enough was enough, I need to get with it and be enthusiastic again. SO I called and I have an appointment for next tuesday, as soon as I made the appt, I was back on the plan. I feel excited again and am eager to see if I have lost weight. ( I think I got rid of any I may have gained over christmas. )
    It feels so good to be ready to work at it again.
    One strange thing that I notice every day is the shock of clothes fitting. I get my PJs out and because I have so many comfy PJs I have a lot of choice, some looser than others but suddenly all of them are loose. I look in the drawers and every evening I am amazed that I don't have to rooth though to find the comfiest. Then I realise that it is entirely in my control to make it that I never have to worry about them being tight again.
    I also threw away the 'safe' jeans, my lovely at least one size too big, stretchy safe jeans. I just knew that I have to start believing that I am getting smaller, the longer I keep wering the huge baggy clothes, the longer I am going to feel huge and baggy. So they went in the bin and I haven't missed them a bit.

    BREAKFAST. Slimfast. Banana.
    LUNCH. Crackerbreads with cream cheese and jam.
    DINNER. Chicken, roasted courgettes, peppers, parsnips and tomatoes.

    Snacks. Goji berry flapjack. Special K cereal.

    I have increased the levels of water I am drinking too, means lots of peeing but it must be done!


    It feels like I update here all the time and then I see I missed a day...gah!

    BREAKFAST. Slimfast, Satsuma.
    LUNCH. Veggie soup and crackerbreads.
    DINNER. ground beef and carrots, mashed potato and sweet potato mix, cabbage.
    Snack. Cheezit snack pack. 10 cal Jelly.

    BREAKAST Slimfast grapes.
    LUNCH. Veggie soup.
    DINNER. Home made beef and mushroom burgers, baked homefries and baked beans.

    Snacks, Special K cereal, 10 cal Jelly.

    Speaking too soon!

    I has a bad day today, one of those where the ultimate goal seems too far away, I felt ugly and fat and just defeated by how long this is taking and will continue to take. A long road. The past few weeks have been on a standstill, my doing of course because I have been cheating and not giving my all to it.
    I need to get weighed so I know if I have gained weight and what I have to do to rectify that.
    The great thing is I am not giving up, I am not giving in to the voices that tell me I am wasting my time. If I am fat and ugly, then stuffing my face is not going to help that is it? If, in the past I have been pathetic and not able to do it, if I always give in and am never one of those success stories, well now is the time to prove that it is never too late isn't it?

    BREAKFAST. Slimfast. Grapes.
    LUNCH. Tuna pasta salad.
    DINNER. Baked beans, 2 slices toast.

    Snacks, Special K cereal. Cranberries.
